Is anyone going to work at a park this season. I just got hired today at SFEG as a ride operator. If anyone is working there than it would be cool to know who you are. But just out of curiosity, who is working at a park next year, what park, and what area is it in? ----------------- "If somebody throws a rock and knocks a man off his donkey, do we say that he's stoned off his ass?
Well, I'm working down at PGA this season. My title is "Rides Lead". So I'll be a ride operator plus I'll be in charge of a scheduling breaks and such in my assigned area. The job sounds like fun. I'm just looking forward to all the nice people I'll meet this upcoming season. :)

I'm working at SFOG this year, next to SUF at the Great American Scream Machine. I'm the foreman at GASM, which the the same thing as a lead/team leader elsewhere. Last season I worked for SFOG on the railroad, which is by far the hardest ride in the park to operate. Also I have worked at the Mindbender, FreeFall, Log Flume, Scorcher, and Batman.

Third year at valleyfair. I'll be working in the rides department, but not as a ride operator. or at least my title doesn't say that i'm a ride operator. i worked the antique autos last year, and although it's not the most thrilling ride, it has definitely been one of my favorite rides to operate simply because it's laid back and there's a lot more interaction with guests. when the guests know they can't ruin the car, they seem to be more at ease and are more willing to have more fun. and it's a lot easier to deal with families because they're so attentive. but that can't be said all the time. ----------------- 3rd yr vf!er
...just a note, please talk to your fellow employees about "stapling". I know some may be trained to push down on the restraints, and we ALWAYS prefer ride-ops who PULL on the lap bars, but there's a not-so-fine line between safety and discomfort. ----------------- Florida needs an Intamin and/or CCI soon...PLEASE!
